Day 11: Shediac, Alma, Cape Enrage, Hopewell Rocks, Hillsborough, Riverview and Moncton ( by car).
Sunday, August 30.
Sunny with a Summer fog. 23C.
After sleeping in this morning we had oatmeal for breakfast in our room. We stopped by the bakery on the way out of Shediac but they are not open on Sundays. On our way to Alma we stopped in Fundy National Park to witness a Summer fog.
We walked around through Alma and visited the farmer’s market.
After that we stopped for lunch at Cape Enrage under a blanket fog.
By the time we had finished eating the fog had lifted.
Then we took a walk along the beach.
After an impressive morning touring around in New Brunswick, we decided to stop at Hopewell Rocks. The tide was out and we took a walk on the ocean floor.
The “Flower Pot Rocks” are larger tan life and beyond words to describe.
Despite the throngs of other tourists we were able to enjoy some of the beach to ourselves. It was a memorable visit.
Carrying on from Hopewell we stopped briefly in Hillsborough where my maternal Great Grandmother was born. I wondered if any of the pictures she painted were scenes from the area.
We made a brief stop in Riverview to see the Spongey Seat guy who makes ergonomic bicycle seats and then we continued on to Moncton where we found a place to stay for the night. It was 8pm by this point so we had another late supper in our room.
Midnight has snuck up on us again! Tomorrow we will be heading to Nova Scotia.
